Round silver glass-fronted reliquary theca dating to 1920's housing first class ex ossibus (from the bone) relics of Saint Benvenutus Scotivoli, Bishop of Osimo. The relics are affixed to a red silk background and identified on a typographic cedula as S. Benven. Ep. C. (Saint Benvenutus, Bishop and Confessor). On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a hardly visible imprint of a coat of arms of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin sealed by Fr. Anthony M. Santarelli, Postulator General of the Order in 1920's responsible for a cause for beatification and canonization through the judicial processes required by the Roman Catholic Church. The reliquary is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued by Fr. Anthony M. Santarelli and dated 1927.
